And once again it’s that time of year….NAFSA is upon us! As we at Athena are preparing for the conference, we are thrilled to officially announce our 4th Annual Global Give Fundraiser which will take place during the NAFSA conference in Washington D.C. this year!
This fundraiser has been so popular among NAFSAns that it has become a permanent part of Athena’s charitable arm, S.O.S. Giving back is a core mission of Athena Study Abroad, and through the various branches of our S.O.S. program, we and our students have been able to join countless charitable organizations to bring about change we want to see in the world. From service-based scholarships, to donations of proceeds and services, to staff service to our own community, to sponsoring events and organizations that we believe in, we do all that we can to make the world a better place for everyone because we feel as global citizens, it is our duty to do so.
With the donations raised last year at NAFSA through our Third Annual Global Give Fundraiser as well as Athena’s dollar-for-dollar donation match, we were able to donate enough to the GoAbroad Foundation to result in the third GoAbroad Annual Scholarship that supports a student in the Philippines to go to school for an entire academic year! Read more about this year’s recipient below. We are beyond thrilled with the support we have received year after year from our fellow international educators and are very excited to continue giving to this amazing charity this year.
**Also for those who don’t carry cash, we are thrilled to announce that we will have a CREDIT CARD PAYMENT OPTION this year!**
